Anthony Davis was feeling great, fired up about being back on the court and not at all subtle about showing it. When it was over, Davis had piled up 39 points, 13 rebounds and eight blocks in his return from a right shoulder sprain, and the New Orleans Pelicans won for the sixth time in seven games, 88-85 over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night. I was just out there having fun and it showed.” Davis hit two mid-range jumpers in the last 1:14, the second with 18 seconds left, to hold off Detroit in a frenetic, defensive game that had 15 lead changes and eight ties. Davis’ seventh block of the game – a two-handed rejection of 6-foot-11 Greg Monroe in the paint – gave him the Pelicans career record, surpassing David West’s 435.

A relieved Tom Izzo arrived for his postgame news conference and reflected on a night when some of his players could have used a few pads and a helmet. ”Welcome to NFL Films,” the Michigan State coach said. I don’t know where to start, because there were so many things that happened, and I just know there were two teams that played awfully hard.” Travis Trice equaled a career high with 27 points and Matt Costello lifted Michigan State at both ends of the court, helping the Spartans to a 72-66 victory over Purdue on Wednesday night. Michigan State played the whole second half without Branden Dawson, who appeared to take a shot to the head and was limited to nine minutes on his senior night.
